I'm going to add something else here.

I've talked to Don a few times myself on the phone and we had fairly lengthy conversations about music and everything else. I'm amazed at what he's done with his music career over the years. Just about everything except singing telegrams and selling encyclopedias.

And Gary too. I take note of everything he's done both inside and outside the music box and all the different roles he's played in his lifetime.

I have to admire the both of you guys......you're both colorful characters.......and.....I don't think either of you knows how "colorful" you actually are.

Now I'm going to have to send you each a wheelbarrow to carry your head in it from now on.

I can't think of the other guy's name right now. He's from Texas. It's late at night and I'm tired! smile


Don........that's not THE Dickie that used to post here regularly, is it? The last guy's name is Gary in case you haven't figured it out yet!

About 10 years ago my wife and I went to Dallas TX for the wedding of the son of a good friend of ours ...
I felt it was perhaps a once in a life time opportunity to see Don at Ernest's so we got into Dallas a couple of days early and drove to Shreveport and met up with Don, Susan, Bill (Semi-Live) and Hank ... it was an honor to share the stage with Don, Bill, and Hank and it is an evening Lydia and I will never forget ...
I only wish I lived closer ... as I've said before, Don is one of the people on this board that I would PAY to see perform ...
A tip of the cap to Mr. Mason ...

No you are thinking about Diki.
Gary is on the right facing us. The other guy is Jay Riseden from Texas.
